Water views and great location on the island. The house is positioned towards the end of a quiet boulevard on the north eastern end of the island (about 4kms from where the ferry terminal is located at the southern end of the island). The northern end of the island is where the main bays and beaches are. The water views from the house look towards North Stradbroke Island. There are no houses between you and the water and you can access Moreton Bay out the front of the property. A perfect place for entertaining, relaxing, fishing, swimming, boating and kayaking. There are a number of places on the island where you can eat out, with the closest to the house being the Bowls Club, which has a courtesy bus service. The island has playgrounds and parks (including a new skate park), a 9 hole golf course, a bike track, heritage walking trail, taxi service, cafes, two supermarkets, organic weekend markets, fuel and a host of other services.
Large two storey home, ideal for two small families or 3 couples, dog friendly
The house is perfect for 3 couples or 2 small families. There is an upstairs and downstairs living area, with easy access shower and toilet on both levels. Upstairs has a massive deck off the living area, with open kitchen, dining and lounge (with TV and DVD player). There are two large bedrooms upstairs, one with a queen bed and the other with a queen and single bed. There is also a smaller room upstairs with a king single bed that runs off the laundry and back entrance to the house. All the rooms have built-in-wardrobes. Downstairs there is a bedroom with a queen bed, and the rumpus room/bar area with large flat screen TV, DVD and Xbox with games. There are also board games and a collection of DVDs at the house. The downstairs area flows out to a lower deck and sitting area. There is plenty of space for everyone. The small yard is fenced and the house is fully screened. Well behaved pets are also welcome :) The house is designed for anyone looking to have a peaceful and relaxing short break or longer holiday with plenty of space for everyone.
Boating, swimming and fishing out the front of the property
To the left of the house is an open beach area where you can swim and launch a tinnie or a kayak around the high tide. You can throw in a fishing line here at the local beach when the tide is in. There is also an all tide ramp at the southern end of the island (with limited parking) and a half-tide concrete boat ramp on the western side of the island at Dalpura Bay, which is a short two minute drive (or 15 minute walk) from the house. Dalpura Bay is also a good spot for a swim and a fish when the tide is in and a great place to sit and watch the spectacular sunsets. As well as being able to take a passenger ferry (which now accept GoCards) or a vehicle ferry to the island to access the property, you can pilot your own boat (or even a seaworthy kayak) to the house. You can anchor in the shallow bay out the front of the house for the week or the weekend. The local bay is protected from the North Easterly and the Westerly winds, which makes it ideal for kayaking or anchoring in most conditions. There are some boogie boards, bicycles and a narrow slipper kayak at the property for the use of guests. There is open parking at the front of the property and vehicle access to the back of the house via an easement, which means loading and unloading vehicles and access to the back of the property is on level ground.
